INTRODUCTION

This Annual Report details the period from September
2001 through August 2002, except where noted. Activi-
ties, personnel changes, organizational structure, and
important events fall within that time frame in order to
make this Report a reference book of CRC programs
for key UF staff, faculty and interested parties.

Statistics on activities, relationships of those statistics
to past data, and the conclusions derived therefrom are
from the Fall 2001, Spring 2002 and Summer 2002 (A,
B and C) semesters.

This period generally encompasses the traditional "2001-
2002 Academic Year," a time frame chosen to make
this report compatible with traditional methods of view-
ing this university's academic production. An exception
is the organizational charts and staff lists, which depicts
the Center as of September 2002, the date of the report's
completion.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


"Our University continues to be a highly targeted
institution by major employers who have great success
with our high caliber interns, co-op students and full-
time hires. We have encountered a steady decline of
numbers of employers, which in turn interview fewer
students for a shrinking volume of vacancies. This
economic cycle has stretched longer than predictedfor
all the reasons that are well known to all.

"As a result, we have seen student traffic in the
Center grow in volume (+5%)for 110, 000 visitors with
a growth of use (+12%) of our library to 60, 740 patrons.
General patterns of counseling and programmatic
offerings have grown as well, indicting a desire for more
guidance and education on the part of our
student body.


"The double-edged sword of a
declining job market and expanding
student demand for services was
confounded by staff turnover, frozen
lines and compressed resources. As a
partial auxiliary, we were able to offset
some of the state funding shortfall, but
that was limited and further depleted our
financial resources.


"On the international front, the CRC
continued to forge ahead to create more connections
around the world via conference presentations, site
visits and involvement with multiple professional
associations. In keeping with the goal of
'intcrnationalizing' UF seeds were planted for future
staff exchanges with career centers in Australia and
the United Kingdom.

"Technologically, 2001-2002 will become a
significant and historic yearfor ourprofession and how
we collect, manage and distribute employment,
candidate and scheduling data. Wayne Wallace was
one ofseven university career center directors that came
t, ', 1 i i,, I become the founders'ofa special non-profit
entity eventually involving the National Association of
Colleges & Employers (NACE) and the E-Rccriiting
Association. A special partnership was formed, custom
software created, and a basis of a national paradigm
shift had been launched. Bill Lewis was a part of the


product development team, which cast the die for the
future. There is an article following this section which
tells the story more completely and represents one of
the most professionally ,i-, 'ii fi, it achievementsfor this
director

I hi report which follows provides an overview of
a staff overloaded with demand and undersupported
financially. I share in their success as do the students
and employers with whom we engage.


Highlights of 2001-2002


Director


For the second year, the Annual Report
contains a detailed listing of the activities
associated with the staff's liaison roles
with the colleges and schools on campus
starting on page 9. This past year saw a
continued focus on a more disciplined and
formalized approach to our liaison
functions, so this section will continue to
expand in future reports.


The 2001-2002 academic year was a
challenging and exciting one for the Career Development
group. The Career Resource Center welcomed over
110,000 visitors over the past academic year. Ofthose,
60,740 visited our Career Resource Library. This
represents an almost 5% increase in general traffic and
an almost 12% increase in our library traffic from the
previous academic year.

Despite having only three of five authorized
counselors, we provided 750 counseling walk-in
appointments and over 300 individual follow-up
appointments. We also launched our new Career
Counseling Groups, called "Beyond Undecided" by
offering the group six times with approximately thirty
students participating.

With the help of the IT staff, we made great
improvements in the credentials program by now
providing students with online access to their files'


.U4-







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


indexes and automating requests online. In addition to
those technological advances, we also put two of our
CRC Card Sorts online: the Values Sort and the UF
Majors Sort.

The Student Development Committee, chaired by
Helda Montero, completely reorganized the ways we
interact with our student employees from recruiting to
training to retention to evaluation and recognition. As a
group, Career Development also celebrated many
professional successes in the field by providing
presentations at three national conferences, holding
approximately fifteen campus and national leadership
positions, and publishing in the Journal of College
Student Development.

Perhaps our most exciting accomplishment has
been hiring two Assistant Directors, who have already
jumped in and become part of the CRC Team!

The Career Networks Group would characterize
2001-2002 year as challenging on all fronts because of
continued weakness in the economy. In spite of the
challenges, the CN Group was able to assist UF students
"beat the odds" as the number of organizations recruiting
at the CRC declined only about 33% compared to
national averages of 40-50%. The tighter job market
generated significantly more demand by students for
programs and services. Our student clients recognized
in increasing numbers that the jobs were going to go to
those who could prepare themselves effectively. The
CN Group is proud to have been a contributor in helping
UF students exceed the national norms in retaining
recruiting levels.

In spite of the tragedy of 9/11 the CRC was able to
call employers and encourage the companies to send
alternate regional representatives to campus that would
not require air travel. Some additional effort and
information was required to help these "substitutes" be
successful in representing their companies on campus.
In this way the CRC partnered with our employers to
help them present employment opportunities to
University of Florida students.

Another successful Extemship program was
orchestrated over spring break allowing students to
shadow professionals in their chosen field. Student feed-
back as to the significance of the experience in helping
them solidify their career choice was very positive.

A number of job search skill programs were
introduced by the CRC this year, including: A Mock
Interview Program for International Students, the
S.M.I.L.E.S. (Sharpen My Interviewing to Lure
Employment) Program, Showcase Cinema (which
prepared students to write their resumes, handle
interviews and prepare for the Career Showcase Career
Fair. The Internship forum prior to the career fair was
a great success, and we expanded the Employer staffed
resume critiquing service and employer workshop series.

In addition to direct career related educational
service, the CRC made great strides this year in providing
recruiter feedback to academic departments on campus.
This enabled the CRC is be a direct contributor to
curriculum renewal efforts at UF. The CRC was
recognized as an institutional strength by the
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technical
Programs (ABET) and was/is a strong contributor to
the College of Engineering's successful re-accreditation
efforts.

Within the operations support and technical areas,
we continued our moderated growth in computer and
other technical capabilities, including a major
"makeover" of our website's appearance and content.

In response to a suggestion from the Auditor
General, we have begun the transition from a spreadsheet
environment for fiscal management to that of Quick
Books Pro, an integrated database, and implemented the
new program on July 1, 2002.

Like most other CRC offices, these sections also
suffered from personnel attrition.

Our Fiscal Assistant, Kelly Jempson, left the
CRC abruptly in mid-February 2002 under a cloud of
legal charges, and was replaced in May by Kevin E.
Riggs, who had served with distinction as our student
fiscal assistant.

Stephen R. Fooks, Assistant Director for
Systems Management, departed in early May 2002 to
accept a new position in Tigert Hall, and was replaced
by William K. Lewis, whose title was changed to that of
Assistant Director for Systems Operation &
Development. His vacant line remains unfilled at the
end of this period, and will likely be re-defined as a
computer programmer-analyst.

The Center made only a few adjustments to its
physical configuration during this report period. The
construction of the Reitz Union's Grand Ballroom above
us continued to cause minor disruptions to our operation
until it was substantially completed in August 2002, but
nothing like the problems suffered in 2000-2001, with
leaks, damage and the forced relocation of the staff and
operations from our facility for six weeks.

We did, however, convert a double room the
former multimedia studio, a large room that could be
partitioned with a folding accordion door into two


separate staff offices. There were also a number of staff
relocations and changes of function in other areas. The
outcome was the creation of two new staff offices and
second student workroom, the latter principally for
Career Showcase and career days support operations.

A few alterations were made to customer service
counters to expand staff seating, as well as work and
storage space, but those changes were relatively
transparent to the casual visitor, but of great utility to
the staff involved.


THE NACElinkTM STORY
A MAJOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CRC
Adapted from an article by Neil Murray, Director of Career Services
University of California San Diego
Published by NACE


We are beyond the crossroads. Avery significant
turn, one that will revolutionize our profession, has been
successfully navigated. NACElinkT" is a reality. This
turn was taken because many of us have decided that
the road upon which we have been collectively traveling
the past decade has grown too bumpy, too full of
potholes, too dangerous.

That was the consensus when seven career center
directors, including Dr. Wayne Wallace at the University
of Florida, came together one year ago to share thoughts
and ideas about our reliance upon technology and the
commercial marketplace. We were uniformly concerned
about where our profession was headed. One by one, in
echo-like fashion, each of us expressed the same
concerns. Was the privacy of student data safe and
secure? How far will the pattern of direct marketing to
our students and alumni go? Isn't that convincing
evidence that we-career centers- are no longer seen
as the primary customer of commercial vendors? How
much of our service identity has been lost to the branding
practices of commercial vendors? Haven't the charges
to employers grown too high, too rapidly? What will
happen after the next predictable sequence of mergers,
buy-outs, and shut downs? Where will we be then? What
are the risks associated with an environment that is


overwhelmingly dependent upon a single, nearly
monolithic service provider?

We decided that it was important to act, to try to
find an alternative that would restore our destiny to our
own hands. Our first thought was that maybe we could
create a consortium of career centers that would fund
and, with the help of the member universities' technical
resources, build a new system for the delivery of on-line
services. Maybe, we speculated, if we did that, we could
persuade our professional association, the National
Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), to take
over in the on-going role of service provider, opening
the service up to all schools.

Admittedly, our initial scheme might have been a
preposterous idea. Without a doubt it was one that would
have been extraordinarily costly and tediously slow to
come into reality-two to three years, at best. We
weren't oblivious to the substantial hurdles associated
with our "project" but we unanimously committed to
pursuing this objective.

From that beginning, we enlisted sixteen career
centers that were willing to contribute to and take part
in the effort-a pretty good start. Interestingly, and a


<0^







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


good measure of the widespread nature of our concerns,
almost no career center directors declined our invitation
to join our consortium.

And then a miracle occurred, one that led to the
establishment of a remarkable partnership that will
forever change and protect our profession and the
interests of those we serve-students, alumni, employers.
As a consequence of this unique and unprecedented
partnership, this whole endeavor has accelerated at a
dizzying pace so that here we are, one year after we first
spoke, celebrating the launching of NACElinkTM, with
twenty-seven premier campuses committed to piloting
the service, including the University of Florida, in its
first year.

Here's what happened. About the same time that
our consortium approached NACE Executive Director,
Marilyn Mackes, she was contacted by a group of
employers, E-Recruiting Association, who had an idea
remarkably similar to the one we had shared with her.
Organized as a non-profit association, like NACE, E-
Recruiting has a rapidly growing membership comprised
of blue-ribbon corporations. Remarkably, the factors that
led to the creation of E-Recruiting are a near match to
those expressed by our small group of career center
directors: the security of data, escalating costs, over-
dominance by a single commercial entity, loss of self-
control, commitment to addressing these issues through
on-line services.

A central feature of E-Recruiting is an already-
popular web site, Direct Employers, which provides
direct links to the web sites of E-Recruiting member
companies. E-Recruiting Executive Director, Bill
Warren, the original founder of the On-Line Career
Center and a former President of Monster, sounded out
Mackes to see if the two non-profit associations could
collaborate on a means of better reaching and serving
the college market. Mackes, of course, expeditiously
arranged a meeting between the two parties and our
partnership took form and was ultimately approved by
the NACE Board of Directors in May of this year.

Technologically robust, financially well-endowed,
and enjoying the fruits of a burgeoning corporate
membership, E-Recruiting brings a great deal to the
partnership-supporting the launch and development of
the system as NACE transforms itself into the role of


on-going service provider. And, of course, all those
connections to employers sure won't hurt!

Initially, NACElinkTM offers three complimentary
services: job listings, interview scheduling, and resume
referral. But this is only the foundation. Eventually,
NACElink"T will become a far-reaching suite of on-line
career services. Built to support these long range aims,
rather than being patched together one step at a time,
NACElink"T can be expected to grow and be enriched
steadily as the years unfold. The system is loaded with
advantages not readily available in the commercial
marketplace, including an exciting array of special
features and, importantly, career center capability to
customize them according to their own needs.

Of course, these are important considerations for
career centers to weigh as the service is made available
to them-job listings in the fall and interview scheduling
in the summer of 2003. But this is too limited a way to
think about this development. NACElink'" is a major
shift in our professional paradigm, a turning away from
an old way of doing business to embrace a
fundamentally new way. We are moving from a
commercial environment to one that is a unique non-
profit partnership between employers and career centers
offered under the friendly and truirst\ orth auspices of
our mutual professional association. This has major
ramifications. NACElink"T will deliver what no
commercial vendor can ever promise.

No more mergers, buy-outs, shut downs. NACE
is a stable service provider, having been around for nearly
fifty years. It will not go away. We can count on that.
And it's not subject to the vagaries of Wall Street
considerations. At long last, we will have an arrangement
that is predictable and secure. All participating career
centers will know that the system they use will still be
there in the following year.

The system has been designed and steered by
career center practitioners. For several months a
twenty-five person Product Development Team made up
primarily of our own hands-on staff members and
technical specialists has designed and developed
NACElink"T. It is our system, made to our specifications.
An Interim Steering Group has been established to carry
on during the coming year, ultimately leading to a more
permanent oversight structure. Four career center

directors, including Dr. Wayne Wallace, sit on the six-
person Interim Steering Group.

Student and alumni data is private and secure.
We will own the data and see that no one else gets it.
NACE will only receive aggregate numbers to measure
usage. The information that we need to protect will be
securely in the hands of career centers. No more
nightmarish fears that the data that our students placed
into a commercial system has been sold or passed along
to be used as one more pile of fodder for unrelated
advertising purposes.

The only brand is our own. How many countless
times have each of us cringed when hearing a student
give credit to a commercial vendor for the job they found
through our service. No more. NACElinkTM features
don't bear that or any other name except those we choose.
They will just be seamless elements of our own websites,
looking and feeling just as we want them to. Our offices
will get the credit that we have always deserved.

Charges to employers will be below market
prices. This is a primary principle ofNACElinkT". With
the profit motive set aside, charges can be minimized
and employers have an option. They don't have to meet


ever-escalating costs associated with some commercial
vendors. They can pay less and ultimately they will get
more. And that helps us forge a stronger than ever
relationship with "our" employers.

Say goodbye to direct marketing. NACElink"T
will never directly market to our students and alumni.
That is our job. We know how to reach our own students
and alumni. We don't need to have someone else stand
in our way, committed to their own commercial identity
and indifferent to our needs to establish and nurture an
affinity between us and those we serve.

We will be free of all the dangers associated with
a monolithic commercial entity. For good reason,
trusts are meant to be busted. Once market dominance
is established and competition is eliminated through one
means or another, commercial enterprises are free to do
whatever they want, with or without our concurrence or
cooperation. For our profession, that is the unhealthiest
of climates and, thankfully, we are escaping it.

NACElink"T is here. The next step belongs to us.
We need to step forward, embrace this rare opportunity
and champion its principles. Nothing less than the future
of our profession is at stake.

ON-CAMPUS LIAISON ACTIVITIES

For many decades, Career Resource Center professional staff members have been assigned liaison duties with
specific colleges or programs throughout campus. These include delivering career skills-related presentations to
academic classes, student and faculty groups, and other organizations; staffing information tables within the colleges
associated with unique CRC career events; and the development and enhancement of cooperative education and
intemship/extemship opportunities for a wide variety of academic majors. This new section to our Annual Report is
a sampling of the nature and impact of our collaborative efforts within the total campus community.

Miles)

Agriculture & Life Sciences

This past year marked a growth in the CRC's ability to provide more attention to the needs of our CALS students.
Two members of the Career Networks Group Lucas Wall and Catherine Lawton one of which is a CALS
alumnus, are assigned to the liaison role within the college. There was an increase in the numbers of outreach
presentations to classes and student organizations and several organizational/tactical meetings with the Dean's office
and selected faculty to develop plans to increase career support for this important college.

Examples of outreach include attendance at alumni events, presentations on cover letter and resume preparation to
Horticulture and FRE classes, two custom resume medic sessions held in the college in preparation for the Agriculture
& Natural Resources Career Fair, and a resume writing workshop held in the college in advance of Career Showcase
in the spring, a tour of the CRC for agriculture students, as well as a CRC services presentation offered to students
from the Ft. Pierce Research Station.

Agriculture & Natural Resources Career Day is a special career fair run specifically for the employers that primarily
seek College ofAg students, and proved once again to be an effective venue to bring together students and employers.

With the added liaison support at the Career Resource Center, and cooperative planning with the college's faculty and
staff, the level of support for this important college's students is expected to continue to rise this coming year.

The Career Development group continued
to change and grow this year with the Cul
introduction of some new and exciting Rec
programs, a significant staff change, and more
than a few noteworthy accomplishments. This
.Gat
report is designed to provide a snapshot of the
2001-2002 academic year.
The academic year began with a major Cre
staff change as Dr. Carlos Hemandez was CRi
offered and accepted a position with the Mo
University of Florida's Counseling Center and CR
officially left the CRC on August 20, 2001.
Lisa Severy was appointed the Interim


Associate Director for Career Development and was
hired in the role permanently after a national search in
June 2002. Helda Montero has been promoted to Senior
Assistant Director for the Career Development Group,
a position Ms. Severy previously held. Shanaz Ali
Sawyer resigned her position in December 2001 to
resume her graduate studies and to spend more time with
her young daughter. Unfortunately, a campus-wide
hiring freeze left us unable to fill the two open positions,
leaving us one counselor down in the fall semester and

two counselors short in the spring. In order to continue
our level of services, Shanaz Sawyer continued to work
with us on a part-time basis.

With great excitement, two new staff members have
been hired since the freeze was lifted. Kisa Pendergrass
joins us as the new Assistant Director for Diversity
Programs, and Farouk Dey joins us as the Assistant
Director for Career Development. Elaine Casquarelli
has changed job functions and will be filling the role of
Assistant Director for Graduate Services. To round out
our changes, Helda Montero's title has been changed to
Senior Assistant Director for Career Education, a title
that more accurately reflects her multiple roles.

The Career Resource Center welcomed over
110,000 visitors over the past academic year. Ofthose,
60,740 visited our Career Resource Library. This
represents an almost 5% increase in general traffic and
an almost 12% increase in our library traffic from the
previous academic year. The following reports
summarize the activities that engage those visitors and
the programs we take outside of the CRC to meet our
constituents wherever they are.

Career Counseling Services

The Career Development Group manages and staffs
our career counseling service. This service consists of
our career counseling walk-in hours, follow-up
individual appointments and, for the first time in the
summer semester of 2001, career counseling groups. Our
counseling team for 2001-2002 consisted of our
Associate Director, two Assistant Directors, and three
advanced counseling graduate student interns from the
Department of Counselor Education in the College of
Education and the Department of Counseling Psychology
in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.

Despite having about half the staff we usually have,
the career counseling team provided 750 counseling
walk-in appointments and over 300 individual follow-
up appointments. Our first series of career counseling
groups, titled "Beyond Undecided," was offered six times
with approximately 30 students participating.

The Cultural Diversity Reception

The Cultural Diversity Reception continues to be
a mainstay in our diversity programming and in Career


Showcase. In the fall semester of 2001, we hosted 125
employer representatives from 44 companies and 190
students representing 24 diverse organizations. In the
spring semester of 2002, 114 employers from 37
companies attended and interacted with 148 students
from 25 student organizations. As overall participation
with Career Showcase was reduced due to the September
11th tragedy and the general state of the economy, we
consider these numbers to be particularly encouraging.
In terms of our student attendance, the combined total
of participants for the two semesters marks a significant
increase over the previous three years. Overall, student
attendance was 33% higher than last academic year.

By holding the spring event on the main arena floor,
we were able to house more student organizations and
even provide live music. As always, both the fall and
spring events were well received by participants.

The Gator Launch Program

The Gator Launch Minority Career Mentoring
Program is designed to assist the University of Florida
community with minority recruiting and retention efforts.
Gator Launch focuses on two key dimensions in college
student retention: career development and mentoring. In
addition to the Assistant Director for Diversity Programs,
the staff also includes a graduate student who serves as
the Gator Launch Director, and an undergraduate intern.

This year marked the first official full year of Gator
Launch and the program was a smashing success, with
three times as many students as we had for our pilot,
one-semester program the previous year. In addition to
our on-campus success, the program gained widespread
attention as it was presented at two national conferences:
the People of Color at Predominately White Institutions
Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the American
College Personnel Association Conference in Long
Beach, California.

This year, our new Assistant Director for Diversity
Programs and new Gator Launch Director hope to
expand the number of participants and increase the utility
of the career development seminars.

Diversity Programs

In addition to the specific programs described
above, the Assistant Director for Diversity Programs


19







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


also participates in on-campus activities as the liaison
between diversity and the world of work. For this
academic year, these activities included:

Annual welcoming events (Black Student
Assembly, Asian Student Assembly, Hispanic
StudentAssembly, the Native American Student
Reception, Disability Student Assembly,
Organizational Fair, International Student
Orientations).
Workshops and outreach programs for
international students.
Annual Multicultural Awards Program,
sponsored by the Vice President for Student
Affairs.
Career Resource Center Library, diversity
concerns section.

Career Resource Library

The Career Resource Library offers information
on many areas pertaining to academic and occupational
exploration, such as majors and career fields, internships
and co-ops, graduate school, employers and companies,
and job search strategies. Our current holdings include
1,657 books or directories; 109 different magazines,
periodicals and newsletters; 1,378 pieces of employer
literature; 104 computer disks or CD-ROMs; and 290
videos.

Career Ambassador Program

The Career Ambassador Program has continued
to grow and develop during the 2001-2002 academic
year, as it has since its inception in January of 1996.
Currently there are seven undergraduate students
providing peer advising and educational services for our
constituents.
The Ambassadors staff peer advising hours in the
CRC library, provide mock interviews, assist students
with SIGI-Plus and the Majors Card Sort, provide
workshops on choosing a major, and conduct outreach
presentations on CRC services, resume preparation,
interviewing techniques, and job search strategies.

In addition to these year-round programs, the
Career Ambassadors also staff Resume Medic. The
Ambassadors, along with any available CRC staff
member, take over the interview modules and meet with
students to review and make recommendations for


revising their resumes. In the 2001-2002 academic year,
553 students had their resumes reviewed through this
service.

CRC Student Development Program

Over the last three years, the CRC has engaged in
a comprehensive overhaul of our policies and procedures
regarding our student staff. To accomplish this, the
Student Development Committee, including
representatives from all functional areas, formed to
address the complete employment cycle spanning from
recruitment to graduation. This committee, chaired by
Helda Montero, established a set of goals that
encompassed employment standards, an official
recognition program, employment evaluation and
feedback, a standardized intake process, improved
quality of work experience, and the development of a
standardized orientation training program. The program
has been very successful in meeting these goals, including
the following highlights:

Recognition Program The Student Development
Committee created several awards to recognize our
outstanding undergraduate and graduate student
employees. Ten times a year, one student assistant from
each team will receive an Award of Excellence. From
this pool an Undergraduate and Graduate Student of the
Year is selected at the close of the spring semester. In
addition to this formal procedure, a S,' Id1ihl Award can
be presented to a student by a staff member or fellow
student at any time as immediate feedback for a job well
done.

Employment Evaluation & Feedback Strong
evaluation and feedback procedures are the key to
continued excellence. Semester evaluation forms, which
are tied directly to salary increases, provide frequent,
specific feedback on both strengths and weaknesses. The
evaluation process is developmental in nature to foster
strong partnerships between supervisors and students.
To continue this partnership, student staff members are
also given the opportunity to evaluate their supervisors
as well as the quality of their work environment. The
committee also appointed a CRC Ombudsman to work
with students who are having difficulty with a supervisor.

Quality of Work Fostering the professional
development of all our employees continues to be a goal
at the CRC. In an effort to provide these opportunities


.20







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


for our student staff, the Student Development
Committee created the P3 (Peer Preparation Program).
Interested students will work on developing and
organizing training opportunities as requested or needed
by their peers.

Training Program -As "lack of training" is cited
as the number one cause for staff turnover, new student
staff to the CRC receive a comprehensive orientation to
the CRC and student services. Undergraduate student
assistants will receive their general orientation via an
online training program followed by on-the-job training
by their individual supervisors. Graduate Assistants
participate in a 40-hour comprehensive orientation the
week prior to commencing their appointments.

Credentials

The credentials program houses academic records,
including transcripts, letters of recommendation,
teaching evaluations, and other professional documents
for students and alumni. For a small processing fee and
at the written request of the student, CRC staff forward
these credentials to potential employers or graduate
schools.

The 2001-2002 academic year saw a number of
changes in the credentials program. The move to a
database format last year led to an interactive, on-line
system that was launched in the summer of 2002.
Students now have the capability to see the content of
their files and request the mailing of specific documents
to specific employers. This automated system should
permit all Credentials Service staff to process requests
more quickly and more accurately. In order to make the
new system functional, every student file had to be
updated, read, and entered accurately into the database.
Credentials service staff, and especially Lennette Brown,
the Credentials Manager, put in countless hours of work
and attention to detail to make the program successful.
In the 2001-2002 academic year, the Career Resource
Center processed 1,389 credentials requests.

Now that the new system is up and running, goals
for the new year include marketing the new program
across campus and increasing the number of students
and alumni who utilize this valuable service. In a time
when many career centers across the country are
eliminating their credentials service as too costly and
labor intensive, the CRC is looking to expand through
-------------


technological development and commitment to servicing
the needs of all students.

Career Planning & Job Search Strategies Classes

The CRC education program continues its tradition
of excellence by offering two career development
courses: Career Planning (SLS 2301) geared toward
Freshmen and Sophomores beginning their career
exploration and Job Search Strategies (SLS 2302) for
Juniors and Seniors exploring career planning and job
searching. The classes are taught by staff and advanced
graduate students, and the CRC offered two sections of
each class in both the fall and spring semesters. Atotal
of 240 students enrolled in those eight sections for the
fall 2001-spring 2002 academic year, which is a 30%
increase over last year.

Graduate Services

Although this position was one of the vacant
assistant directorships frozen this year, service to
graduate students continued. Workshops provided both
inside the CRC and to departments on campus included
The Curriculum Vita, A /rkcring Your Master or PhD
Outside ofAcademia, and The Academic Job Search.
In addition, the CRC library continued to add to our
section for the graduate students with materials such as
books about the job search in academia, marketing your
skills outside of academia, and career change resources.

Mock Interview Program

The Mock Interview Program continued to be one
of the most popular services provided by the CRC. the
program provides UF students the opportunity to practice
their interview techniques with a CRC Career
Ambassador. The prospective candidate is interviewed
and given constructive feedback about his/her
interviewing techniques. Areas of particular strength
are noted, as well as those in need of improvement.

During the 2001-2002 school year, 307 mock
interview appointments were available to students.
Because the program is continuously in demand, plans
are in the works to expand the number of appointments
available to students for the upcoming year.

Outreach & Presentation Program

As most career centers around the country have
come to recognize, meeting students where they
congregate can be more effective than enticing them to
come into the career center itself. Between the use of
web technology and the expansion of outreach services
the "Career Center Without Walls" is becoming a reality.
Our Outreach Program includes services for student
organizations, UF courses, liaison-specific requests,
residence hall presentations, andjoint programming with
partners within the Division of Student Affairs. Our
Career Ambassador Peer Advising group and CRC
professional staff members staff the Outreach Program.
In addition to campus and community outreach, CRC
stafalso give presentations across the state and country
related to career services.


During the academic year of 2001-2002, the
Outreach & Presentation Program providers offered 212
presentations for 10,292 attendees. Even with the two
professional positions held frozen due to funding cuts,
this represents an increase of more than 23% over the
number of attendees last year.

Majors Fair

Our Majors Fair once again proved successful in
its third showing during the fall of 2001. The Majors
Fair offers undecided students the opportunity to learn
about the variety of majors available to them at the
University of Florida. Advising representatives from
14 UF colleges and schools provided information about
their programs in an effort to help students consider
academic options.

The Career Networks Group is involved in a complex set of interrelated activities, all of which involve the
objective of facilitating the interaction between employers and students. The group's focus is on preparing students
to effectively recognize, explore and pursue career opportunities. Within the Career Networks umbrella are three
primary functions, the first related to Experiential Education (Co-op, Internship, and Extemship Programs), the
second to the organization and execution of career events which bring students and employers together, and the third
is associated with the myriad of recruiting activities, such as resume referral, recruiting systems and management, as
well as employer relations/development.

The CN Group would characterize 2001-2002 year as challenging on all fronts because of continued weakness
in the economy. In spite of the challenges, the CN Group was able to assist UF students "beat the odds" as the
number of organizations recruiting at the CRC declined only about 33% compared to national averages of 40-50%.
The tighter job market generated significantly more demand by students for programs and services. Our student
clients recognized in increasing numbers that the jobs were going to go to those would could prepare themselves
effectively. The CN Group is proud to have been a contributor in helping UF students exceed the national norms in
retaining recruiting levels.

This year also saw a continuation of the reorganization of the Career Networks Group. This reorganization
enabled our group to place more emphasis on customer service and the gathering of data of significance to students,
faculty and employers.


EXPERIENTIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS


The Experiential Education Programs (Cooperative
Education, Internships, and Externships) provide a link
between academic studies and work through career-
related experience opportunities. These opportunities
allow students to explore or confirm a career choice,
gain experience in a particular field, increase their
marketability in the job market, develop a professional
network, and perhaps earn money and/or college credits.

Each of the Experiential Education Programs are
partially supported by Job Location & Development


(JLD) funds as part of the U. S. Department of Education
Federal Work/Study Program, and are geared toward
providing off-campus, career-related experience
opportunities for students prior to graduation. These
programs are not based on a demonstrated financial need,
and are open to any student enrolled at the University of
Florida.

The activities of all three programs for 2001-2002 are
described on the next page, along with supporting data
in charts.







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


Externships

The Extemship Program was created last year to
assist students who are in the initial stage of career
exploration. This program enables the CRC to assist
students at all stages of the developmental spectrum, as
it relates to their career exploration, learning and
development.

The program, which is run during Spring Break
week, included 30 students from a wide variety of
academic majors and career interest areas. Students
provided information about their career interest areas
and the city in which they would like to do their
extemship, and Experiential Education staff members
contacted professionals in those respective cities and
industries to find extemship hosts for the students.
Participation was up 50% from last year.

Internships

The Internship Program at the Career Resource
Center is essentially a clearing house of internship
opportunities for all students seeking career-related
experience. Students seeking internships may register
with the CRC (via the GatorTRAKc System) to take
advantage of on-campus interviewing activity and resume
referrals. The CRC also provides an on-line internship
database that allows students to apply directly to internships
companies of interest.

The CRC Internship Program facilitates the connection
between students and employers via the on-line internship


database, the Career
interviewing activity.
For the 2001-2002
academic year, 1,350
internship
opportunities were
listed in the database.

Cooperative
Education

The Co-op
Program provides
opportunities for
students to gain paid,
practical work
experience as part of


Showcase, and on-campus


their education. Within the alternating program,
students work in full-time, career-related positions and
alternate between semesters of work and school, while
in the parallel program students work in part-time
positions, allowing them to continue their academic
studies while they gain work experience.

As is occurring nationally, during the past academic
year, student participation in the Co-op Program
decreased compared to 2000-2001. This reflects the
trend away from multiple-year co-op commitments to
shorter, one- and two-semester experiences, such as
internships. Please see Chart B, below, for diversity of
2001-2002 Co-op participants.

Summary

Experiential Education offers a widening variety
of career-related work experiences for all University of
Florida students through Extemship, Internship and
Cooperative Education Programs.

The Extemship Program offers students in the
beginning stages of their career development the chance
to explore careers without a semester-long (or longer)
commitment to a company.

The Internship Program continues to show
exceptional growth. Internships are well received among
students because they offer great flexibility in
employment options, and positions are offered to students
from a wide range of academic majors. Increasingly
students are seeking international work experiences.

The Co-op Program continues to provide a
comprehensive experience to students willing to make
the commitment of more than one semester.

Collaboration efforts with the Center for Retailing
Education & Research continue to provide increased
opportunities in retail-related internships. The efforts
of the Retail Center's staffto educate, promote internship


opportunities, and partner in the management of
interview schedules has provided students significantly
increased internship opportunities. Forthe second year,
collaboration with the Electrical Engineering Department
provides students with guidance before they leave for
their internship/co-op experiences and assists the
academic department with coordination of student and
employer evaluation forms.


EMPLOYER RELATIONS


Adjusting our Efforts


Increased Use of Technology


The 2001-2002 recruiting activity showed definite
signs of a weak economy. Employers continued a very
low level of hiring activity, and manufacturing,
construction and retail sectors were hiring in severely
reduced numbers from the previous levels.

The CRC adjusted accordingly and worked with
employers to maximize the utility of their recruiting
efforts. Our staff encouraged recruiting at UF by
working out better ways to connect with candidates, and
better ways to perform pre-selection of those candidates.
An employer workshop series was continued, which
produced excellent student and employer feedback.

Recruitment Activity

Though the university found itself on an increasing
number of companies' "target schedule" lists, the total
hiring by those employers dropped off markedly. The
result was a decline in interview activity during the 2001-
2002 school year. A total of 325 employers ran 822
interview schedules. Those schedules resulted in 7,158
interviews being held at the CRC (Chart D, page 23).

The slowdown in the economy was evidenced in
the reduction of jobs listed at JobTrak. There were
11,026 jobs listed compared with 18,824 the previous
year (Chart F, page 26).

Employers are doing much more pre-selection of
candidates and expected higher recruiting effectiveness
from their efforts. To that end, the Employer Relations
group developed changes in methods and introduced
innovative uses of technology to assist in the recruitment
ofUF students and alumni.


The GatorTrak web-based scheduling system saw
a modest gain in student registrations and more web-
based recruiting applications aimed at improving and
simplifying recruiting logistics were introduced this year.
GatorTrakc student registration rose to over 7,800
interview-eligible students. A demographic breakdown
of the GatorTrakc can be found in Chart E, page 24.

This year we re-introduced the Gator Locatorc
resume search service, which provides better resume
access for employers and, as such, has increased the
quality of the pre-select pool chosen by the employer.

The CRC improved its web pages and students were
better able to search for job opportunities, research
companies, and network. Similarly, web page changes
made it easier for employers to connect with students
and market themselves.

Other CRC web-based applications, which were
enhanced, included on-line registration for career events,
on-line newsletters, on-line career articles, increased
numbers of career-related links off our library pages,
opportunity alerts, and reminder systems for interview
schedules and information sessions.

Minority Participation

In 2001-2002, the CRC continued to develop or
participate in initiatives to build the gender and ethnic
makeup of the students registered with the Center and
attending the University. Special outreach programs
were given to minority societies in several colleges. The
CRC publicized and co-sponsored events that promote
relationship development between students and







(www.crc.ufl.edu)


employers. For example, in conjunction with Career
Showcase a number of receptions and networking
activities were held. These events included, but were
not limited to, Graduate Women in Business Conference,
Society of Women Engineers' Evening with Industry,
Hispanic Engineering Society's Employer Workshops,
National Society of Black Engineers Employer Series,
and the Minority Business Society's Professional Series,
which included an etiquette dinner event.

Reorganization Increased Customer Satisfaction

In this past year, the Career Networks group re-
aligned responsibilities to create a greater focus on
customer satisfaction and on gathering and reporting


data of significance to our users. An employer
satisfaction survey was completed to assess satisfaction
with the CRC's services. The results were very
gratifying, in that 86% of the 400+ respondents rated
the quality of service Very Good or Excellent when
compared to other schools at which they recruit.

The Career Resource Center regularly contributes
job offer data to the NACE National Salary Survey.
Additionally, recruiter evaluations of candidates are
being gathered in order to supply feedback to students
(upon request) and to curriculum committees as
requested for their program improvement efforts. Thus,
our reorganization is improving our partnership with
students, faculty, administrators and alumni.

CAREER EVENTS

Companies find that the University of Florida career days offer them high visibility and give them the opportunity
to identify students to interview during the company's on-campus interview visits) during the recruiting season.
Opportunities include Cooperative Education positions, Internships, and full-time employment. It should also be
noted that the CRC's events offer UF students the ability to develop leadership experience as volunteer directors and
staff that facilitate the running of these events. Hundreds of student volunteers build valuable work/leadership
experience while helping facilitate these events.

During the 2001-2002 academic year, the Career Resource Center hosted nine events, plus co-hosted the
annual Statewide Job Fair, and held an on-line job fair While the economy reduced company attendance by one-third,
the CRC fared well in comparison to many other universities that saw drops of over 40-45 percent. Student attendance
at career fairs remained strong, though, topping 14,000 for only the second year. Student and employer participation
are shown by event in Chart F (page 26).


FAIR DESCRIPTIONS


Career Showcase is normally held in September

General


The Career Resource Center remains unique among
university career centers in having a separate staff section
devoted to administrative, fiscal and technological
support to the center's operational activities. As in past
years, we continue to host visitors from other centers
and field inquiries about this distinctive operation.

The Technical Operations group that was created in
2000 continues to help develop our growing
technological infrastructure. The current Assistant
Director for Systems Management & Development,
William K. Lewis, remains directly subordinate to the
Director (see Chart H, page 36). However, in May 2002,
the then-Assistant Director for System Management,
Stephen R. Fooks, left the CRC for a position at the
Vice Provost's IT office, and the vacant line will
eventually be reclassified as a more technical position
and hiring should take place at the end of 2002.

Bill Lewis, and eventually the technical specialist,
work in collaboration with the SeniorAssistant Director
for Career Education on the Career Development staff,
and the SeniorAssistant Director for Employer Relations
with the Career Networks group.

They are responsible for all computer operations,
including the development of computer strategies and
programs, purchase of hardware and software, training
of staff members, development and implementation of
computer programs, computer support to CRC
operations, and documentation.

In mid-February 2002, our Fiscal Assistant who had
been hired in April 2001, was discharged for
misappropriation of funds and was subsequently


criminally prosecuted and sentenced for the crimes. The
then-Student Fiscal Assistant, who has been the driving
force in our conversion from a purely spreadsheet
accounting process to Quick Books Pro (QBP) for Fiscal
Year 2002-2003, Kevin E. Riggs, was offered the Fiscal
Assistant position and accepted effective May 10, 2002.

One of the major activities during this period was
the fiscal and operational review by the Inspector
General's office. One of the inspector's recommendations
was that we move from spreadsheet-based accounting
to something more sophisticated, and the application
Quick Books Pro was suggested, as it has been
successfully used in many offices on campus. We
purchased a demo of the software and Kevin worked
tirelessly to review and put it through its paces to see if
it would work for us. When it was clear that the software
would significantly improve all fiscal and reporting
activities, we purchased five copies and prepared for
the transition to QBP on July 1, 2002.

This coming Fiscal Year will be a year of "learning"
and "fine-tuning" the system

As in the past, the Operations Support group remains
responsible for the following key functions and areas:

All administrative activities, to include
correspondence (incoming and outgoing),
documentation, forms, and other such functions not
delegated or assumed elsewhere in the CRC.

Financial operations, including budgeting,
purchasing, invoicing, accounting, receipt of materials,
disbursement of funds, and the provision of financial

analysis and reports to CRC decision makers, along with
recommendations and options.

Payroll actions for permanent staff, student
assistants, and paid interns. Coordination of payroll
actions for graduate assistants (when assigned) with their
sponsoring colleges and departments.

Publications and arts & graphics support to CRC
staff members and programs, events, or activities
sponsored by the CRC. This includes development and
publication of such materials as advertisements, flyers,
forms, documents, brochures, manuals, reports, signs
and similar items, as required. Operations Support is
specifically responsible for the Gator Career Guide,
Employer Resource Guide, Estimate of Graduates,
Invitation to Recruit, the CRC Annual Report, and others
in the process of development.

Management of all leave records and input into
the automated leave management system.

Facilities management, including renovation,
housekeeping, repair, purchases, and moving operations.

Management and inventory of all real property
items assigned to the Center.

Fiscal Operations

The Center's accountant and staff are responsible
for the management, accounting and oversight of seven
separate state, agency, Job Location & Development
(Federal JLD funds), and several UF Foundation
accounts.

As in the past, very tight accounting procedures are
employed to maintain the tightest controls over the
Center's limited funding. Statistical accounting reports
are prepared monthly, quarterly, annually, and as
required to provide the Director and other decision
makers with the fiscal information necessary for effective
management. Innovative computer applications are used
to generate reports and to help in the fiscal management
of unique CRC programs.

In the second half of this academic year, we made
chose to make the leap from a mismatched collection of
often unrelated Excel spreadsheets for fiscal management
to a more sophisticated integrated system Quick Books


o.WI


Pro. The system was tested and layouts prototyped in
the spring of 2002, and by the start of the 2003 fiscal
year on July lst we had made the data transition and

Information Technology

The Information Technology (IT) staff continued to
support the office's use of GatorTRAK. They work
very closely with the Career Networks group, vendor
representatives, and technical support personnel to
ensure the accuracy, viability, and efficiency of the
system, and to ensure that it meets an often changing
need.

World Wide Web

We continue to refine our presence on the World
Wide Web (WWW). Throughout this reporting period,
the permanently-established CRC Web Committee
tackled the problem of accuracy and content of the
materials on our web site and the overall appearance of
the web presence. There were approximately 9.2 million
individual "hits" to our web site during this period.

But, we continue to work on enhancing the look of
the site and improving its usability by our many
customers.

Print Materials & Graphics

One of the key functions of Operations Support
remains the design, development, preparation and
production of relatively sophisticated graphics and
publications to support both general CRC operations
and programs and for individual staff members and their
activities or events.

However, as reported many times in the past, credit
is also due to individual staff members and other staff
areas who continue to create and promulgate increasingly
sophisticated materials on their own.

During the period of this report, we continued to
refine and reformat many of our printed materials. The
group, principally the new Assistant Director for Public
Relations, has again completely updated and reissued
the following CRC publications:

Gator Career Guide For the eighth consecutive
year Future 1st Global, Inc. of Marietta, Georgia,


A~







(www.crc. ufl.edu)


provided us 12,250 copies of our student guide. The
2001-2002 edition, published in August 2001, was made
available to students in mid-September. The page design
and layout featuring a more contemporary, open
corporate format, was new for this edition. The text
was further simplified and featured contemporary
graphics and sidebar information.

Employer Resource Guide ~ This year, we took
our first steps toward a self-sustaining publication, one
that would pay for itself. Advertising space was sold to
local hotels and restaurants, and in this initial effort we
were able to recoup approximately two-thirds of our
production costs for the guide and its two companion
employer-focused publications. The guide was printed
in an eye-catching 8x8 inch size, which is easier for the
employers to carry with them in briefcase of calendar
planner. Nearly 1,500 were distributed to employers.

Estimate of Graduates ~ The 2001-2002 issue
of this pamphlet was published in July, and rather than
include the data as an appendix to the Employer Resource
Guide, as was done last year, it was placed on the
Center's website to provideanyone easy access to the
material. Again, the look and content has not changed
significantly over the past year, but many of the colleges
represented made updates to the majors offered.

The Center's three staff groups continue to
collaborate with one another on the creation and
expansion of a series of Career Handouts covering a
variety of key career-related subjects. Individual teams
or staff members prepared the material on subjects
pertinent to their team's areas) of responsibility, and
they were reviewed for accuracy and consistency by the


Associate Director for Career Development.
Physical Facilities

In general, this was a quiet period for the CRC.
Construction of the ballroom above us continued at a
leisurely pace, interrupting the Center's activities only
occasionally for the routing of data cable or electrical
wiring through our ceiling to the ballroom's floor.

There was no major renovations or reconfigurations
to the CRC, with only a few office relocations and the
changes to functional usage of several rooms. For
example:

A wall was constructed across the large multimedia
studio to create two offices eliminating the collapsible
divider one for our Assistant Director for Diversity
Programs, and the other to be shared by the Gator
Launch staff

Other staff relocations saw additional office space
being provided to graduate assistants, the re-location of
the mock interview program to the office at the very
front of the facility, and an additional workroom was
created on the north hallway to house the students
working on the various career events.

This displaced the Assistant Director for Public
Relations, who was re-located in the office space vacated
by the mock interview program.

No particular net gain in office space, because the
multimedia studio was being used for offices anyway,
but the solid wall now ensures greater privacy and the
other office relocations increased individual space and
contribute to better efficiency and communications.

STAFF PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES


Professional staff members are encouraged to
attend conventions, conferences, professional
development seminars, and workshops, participate in on-
campus workshops and on task forces, and become
involved in other activities that foster their career
development and represent the CRC.

Again this year, many of the support staff were
able to take advantage of these opportunities as well.
